skyscrapers and sunset sky seen from the east

The skyscrapers to the south of Dubai seem to rise up out of the desert like a mirage. The sunset sky graduates from blue at the top to gold at the level of the sun, which has only a few more minutes to go before it sinks beneath the horizon.

This view is a potent illustration of how an ultra-modern city has arisen out of a barren desert in just one generation. On 12 May 2004 this image and two others were ordered as prints by a customer in Dubai for delivery in the UK. This was the first order received since Printbutton went fully live on 11 May.
